The Midwest building community is going green - that is if William "Ez" and Will Housh of Monroe Mechanical have anything to do with it. The father and son duo are hoping their new project, GreenSource Cincinnati, will do just that!
Over the last year, the Housh's have worked to restore and renovate a historic building in downtown Cincinnati. Located at 19 East 8th Street, the $1.5 million resource center will showcase green building products, services, and education. It is scheduled for a grand opening in about two weeks.
The building, which was built in 1875, was given a "green" makeover. They recycled the existing materials when possible, re-finishing wood floors, adding insulation, and installing new heating, plumbing and lighting.
"The center is registered for LEED Gold certification. LEED is the standard in the green building industry. Our goal is to be a resource center and to inspire the Midwest building community with energy efficient, sustainable technologies," Will House told Cincinnati.com.
In addition to consulting individual clients, the group will offer educational training at "green" events and seminars. They also plan to schedule regular events that will showcase energy efficient HVAC systems, electrical technologies, water reclamation systems, green roof systems, a green data center, and more. They hope to appeal to building professionals such as commercial builders, architects, designers, engineers, building owners, property managers, and other event attendees.
Right now, over 50 technology partners plan to display their products and services at GreenSource. They include: Schneider Electric, Lennox, Kohler, APC and Sun Windows. All technologies are installed, serviced, or distributed by Monroe Mechanical, which serves commercial clients or by their sister company HOUSH - The Home Energy Experts, which serves residential clients.
The grand opening for GreenSource Cincinnati will take place on March 18t from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Cincinnati Mayor, Mark Mallory and Cincinnati U.S. Green Building Council Vice Chairperson Susan Brownknight will both be in attendance.
